      Twister, that looks like a great room! Ideal for one-pocket: 15 good lookin' GCIV's. It's nice to see a room which the owner keeps in great shape.

        Yes, and they also host the New England Pool & Billiard Hall of Fame...

          Yeah, it is a very nice room and the owners do care a lot about the game. It should be a great tournament and I expect it to be a full field with the added money we have for such a low entry fee.

            Bump to the top. Lots of added money for a low entry fee and a great pool hall. Come out and support the return of real one pocket to the NE.

              What a great November event. So glad you got the HUGE added money.

              Should be a great time.
              Been practicing more and more... still need a consistant stroke and glasses

                Thanks Tom. Paul and I appreciate your input, and we hope to emulate the Hard Times tournament tradition of a large field and a one-day event. We do think that the added money is huge, especially considering the entry fee is only $50, and the money is added regardless of whether the field is full or not. Here's hoping to a little one pocket resurgence in the NE.

                  Hey Carey......You never said how your inaugural One Pocket tournament went - how many players, who won, any 'name players' show up, etc.

                    Ghosty,

                    You may have more info than I(being as Ghosts can travel around in time) but the title of his thread implies that the tourney will be on Nov. 6, 2010, a month or so from now.

                          Is there a possiblity of a D player handicap?

                          I'd play, but C would be a stretch for me. Is there a D class handicap option?

                            I am playing is this too -- I'll be riding down from NH with my friend John Smith, who is also playing in it.

                            I got a few hours of One Pocket in yesterday with "twister" -- which we both definitely needed. He'll be there too. $50 entry and $1000 added AND handicapped and only 24 entry max field -- what's not to like?

                            If you are anywhere within range come on over to Snookers and join us. Snookers is a real nice room, with a bar and food in separate areas -- it is probably the most successful poolroom in New England right now.
